Over heating light

I have an 2004 atv Arctic cat 400 auto. I ran in a hot day and my o-h light was on but the fan did not start before. He started very late and he got off with the o-h light still on. I made the road remaining (~10 miles) at high speed to vent the radiator always with the o-h light on. Was it dangerous for my motor/transmission and where is the problem?

Yes it was bad to run the engine hot. When the light came on you should shut the macine off and take it an authorized repair facility as soon as possible. Your problem could be electrical or something as simple as the radiator is low on coolant or the cooling fins are clogged with dirt and wont allow air to pass through them. In any case you should take the machine to an authorized repair facility that will warrant their work and use good parts to fix the problem.

Do i need a certain wiring harness to put a winch on my arctic cat four wheeler or just the one that comes with the winch and that on the four wheeler it self


your artic cat may have a plug for your winch and again it may not. Call any artic cat dealer and tell them what you want to do. Have them recommend a winch that is compatable with your 4-wheeler and get a price that includes installation.

Water build up in the starter & Reqoil case of my Polaris ATV


Your drain plugs should be visable, if they exist, on the lowest point of the body of the device. If you can't readily see them, consider drying out the entire unit with a hair dryer and a little patience in drying the entire unit. From then on, I would consider evaluating the depth of water before entering. After all, the unit may not be amphibious, which sounds like your intended use!
Also, the battery may be affected by the extreme cold, as they often are, leaving a different approach to this problem. Good Luck!
